House and surroundings

Our house is located in Wißmar, a part of Wettenberg. The village has about 5000 inhabitants and is located about 7 km north of Gießen.

Wißmar is a residential community consisting of an older village center and a new development area. North of the village is about 1 km outside the small settlement of Erlental with a restaurant which is often visited by walkers and cyclists on weekends.

There directly at the edge of the forest next to the old forester's lodge are our vacation apartments.
